In a great location beside the blue mosque and close to the palace which we visited. Hotel is small but clean and we were in room 207 facing the street with a balcony but it was quiet.... More

I stayed there with my wife for 3 nights in May,2013. It is conveniently situated, close to the Blue Mosque(back side of it) and in the Sultanahmet area. Easy to explore the city from here. Decent accommodation, nothing grand about this place, had to haggle to get the AC switched on in May(does get really hot in Istanbul).Changed the room... More

We stayed here this past weekend - The location was awesome, the price was not too bad. The rooms were small and the staircase was steep, but we were in Istanbul to see Istanbul and not the hotel. The breakfast was fresh, the staff very nice and helpful, the rooms were very clean.

Tiny little building with tiny little rooms. If you are a family, I wouldn't recommend. If you are on your own, the location and the friendly staff will win you over and compensate for other things. Nice, friendly people they are. The place is close to everything and the restaurants downstairs are great. The stairs are very very narrow. Need... More

Only 3 mins walk from Sultanahmet Square - This cosy hotel was the ideal base to explore most of Istanbul's main attractions... Our room was clean and tidy with a nice comfy bed, good shower and wc... essential for recharging your batteries after a full days exploring. Exceptional value I think... with all the modcons needed for an enjoyable stay... More

Stayed here 5 nights, a good clean room with a clean bathroom and shower. Staff in mehmet and ika are most helpful with all queries. Akbiyik St can be a little noisy but nothing too excessive and late and chances are you will be out there dining in evening anyway. Not an issue if window closed as there is ac... More
